After all the raves about this place I had to check it out. Yes the burger is tasty, and the fries.... but EVERYTHING is freaking EXTRA.... cheese, guac, mushrooms, fries!!! I am surprised they didn't charge for the bun and the ketchup!

The food is good but a bit pricey to me. It can be a bit noisy during the busy times but most places are. I really like the decor. Guess I'm still a "hair-band' junky at heart! :)

I like the burgers. They are meaty and juicy and they taste really good. The only problem I have is with the waitstaff. They seem bored and rude and looks like they just can't wait for me to finish and get out of there. If you can ignore the staff, it really does taste good and it's worth a shot.

Best burger ever! I recommend the buffalo with jalapeno, blue cheese and bacon along with the fried pickles. Plus they called me Penelope Cruz-fun fun place!

The menu is great. They have unique items such as buffalo burgers and alcohol based shakes. My only complaint is that they don't have wait staff. You have to stand in line both to place your order and then go pick it up.

Waited over half an hour for our order. The staff was rude about our wait time. When we finally got our food, it was cold. We talked to the manager, but he wouldn't comp our meal. He just gave us a $20 gift certificate for when we come back, but we won't be returning, so it's worthless.

My wife and I went into Twisted Root after seeing it on DDD. and boy were we dissapointed big time!

1. Parking - pay 2 bucks to park in their parking lot (5 bucks on weekends) or pay a meter. Aside from that the parking lot looks like a garbage dump; trash and broken bottles EVERYWHERE...so be careful if you do go there to not get a flat.

2. Staff - Extremely rude, not helpful at all...Heck, they had no idea what they were doing....lol

3. Food - way overpriced for what you get....Where to begin....Lets see for starters the onion strings are terrible. They give you thin measly strips of onion and the batter just falls right off it..Total fail

The fries were ok at best....Just your basic pre-packaged curly fries....nothing special

Fried pickles had a real sour taste to them, wouldn't recommend them.

The fried green beans are "ok"

Now, for the burgers....

The burgers were again "ok" at best.......Not really flavorful at all and kinda dry......My wife has a blu cheese burger and all it was; was blu cheese salad dressing on top of a patty...Not a REAL blu cheese burger...
I had a cheddar burger and same thing, just "ok"

Way way way way way overpriced for what you get......kinda sad really

4. Atmosphere - loud music, bumper stickers all over the walls....Looked kinda cool..
Music was way to loud, everyone was complaining about it.....Gave both of us a headache

** oh yeah almost forgot these guys charge gratuity without asking you, even if its for one person!!

In conclusion if you want to go out and have a burger and see downtown dallas go to the ANGRY DOG...its right down the street from twisted root and much better prices/quality all around.

Pros: Down the street from angry dog

Cons: Everything

.

The location I visited was in downtown Dallas.
This place has a sprit of Satan about it. Christians - be warned. You will not like it here, and if you do and think you are a Christian, then chances are you need to check yourself cause the enemy has neutralized you.
Here are some details from my experince:
Parking - I'm not sure what the sketchy guy across the street was yelling about when I was getting out of the metered spot I parked in - but it still had 37 minutes on the meter and I thought that would be enough time and I just ignored him. I don't appreciate people yelling unintelligible things to me - not a great way to welcome your customers. Red Flag #3. #2 was having toruble finding this place on my garmin and 1 was the websites history that states this place was started in part by a rude worker cursing at a customer.
#4 was the obnoxiously loud music which only exacerbated my wife's headache. The wait in line was too long - I felt truly sorry for the customers who came in after us - after the rush. I only had 2 people in front of me - 10 minute wait. But when I left there was a line out the door.
They did not properly advertise their meat patty selection - such as ostrich and stuff.
The order taker got the order wrong - I got 2 burgers, one of them being a double - rather than 3 single patty burgers. The guy handing otu the food was nice about that though - he looks very mellow - like he's not unfamiliar with other twisted roots (and/or leaves).
The place was a downtown bar - like the kind I used to go clubbing at. Not very friendly and you have to fight to get your due. Fight for a clean table, the restroom, to be heard, your order, your way in, your parking, etc. Not a great place to take kids.
Food was OK but the sides were too greasy. I agree with most of the lower star reviews on the food quality. I like home made food, but I could do 2 burger ans 5 sides for way less than $32 at home and be of the same or better quality (I'm a good cook though).
Alas, because of that Satanic spirit which I didn't recognize until later, you couldn't pay me to go back.

Twisted Root is yet another example of an attempt to shrewdly market what is deceptively average quality and manufacturing an atmosphere with signage that pretends to suggest some kind of "history" in the place or the "worn, urban" look. What they serve is a three dollar burger that they charge over five dollars for. If you want anything on it other than lettuce tomato and onion, you have to pay 75 cents per topping. They also season this burger with some kind of pepper that does nothing for it. The fries are also average and overpriced. For all of you who have said this is the best burger you have ever had, I feel sorry for you. Go to Five Guys. You will get a far better burger with more meat on it at a lower price with all toppings included. Five guys is literally the best burger out there and if you don't agree you are probably lying and work for one of their competitors.

I had read nothing but good things about the Twisted Root Burger Co., and my wife and I, being self-proclaimed burger connoisseurs, we were really excited to check it out. They've been nominated for best burger, best fries, best onion rings, and best restaurant value in Dallas, by several publications and websites. Unfortunately, on our visit, they didn't live up to the praise that they so often receive.

First let me start by saying that I did like the atmosphere. Housed in an antique building in Deep Elum, just up Commerce from the old Copper Tank Brewery location, the interior has corrugated tin on the bar and walls, tabletops covered in bottle caps, humorous bumper stickers on the walls, hand-written chalkboard menus, and skylights, which gave the place a funky, comfy kind of feel. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and they have a full bar and a patio. Many of the menu items are made from scratch, on site, including ice cream, root beer (which had a definite sarsaparilla/licorice flavor), and pickles (we really enjoyed these). They tout their all-beef hot dogs and also serve some unique burgers such as buffalo ($7.99, always available), ostrich and venison (when in season), as well as turkey and veggie burgers. A couple of salad choices are available as well.

You stand in line to order at the counter and are given a card with the "name" of your order printed on it. This is a little gimicky, but kind of fun, as the names on the cards are famous people, real and fictitious. We were Walker Texas Ranger; others were Bilbo Baggins, Violet Beauregard, and Clint Eastwood. The staff has a good time, throwing in a few ad libs, while calling these out and occasionally get a few laughs from some of the other diners. The Root is kid friendly and accepts most major credit cards.

We were there at 1:00 pm on Saturday and by 1:15, the line was out the door, but they keep it moving pretty quickly. I ordered the cheddar burger ($5.49) with fries ($1.99) and Lisa had the peppercorn ranch and bacon burger ($6.99) with onion rings ($2.99). The burgers, served in red plastic baskets, had nice presentation, even though the order of non-crispy curly fries was pretty small for the price (I'm not a big fan of curly fries anyway). However, Lisa's onion rings were pretty darn good, for thick rings, as Lisa and I typically prefer thin. In fact, the crusty, golden, crunchy rings were sweet and flavorful. They will most likely make our upcoming "Best O-Rings in Dallas" list. There were a number of house made condiments, besides the basics, on the table, including a barbecue sauce, horseradish dijon mustard, and a chipotle ketchup. We found the mustard to be very good.

The burgers are served on sesame seed buns, which were dry on top and a bit soggy on the bottom. The meat patties were 1/2" thick, cooked medium-well to well, which made them pretty dry. They also had no real noticeable seasoning. The bacon on Lisa's burger was crisp, but the peppercorn ranch was a little watery and made the rest of the burger moist. She wasn't able to finish hers, and she's a real hamburger nut.

Overall, overrated; a pretty disappointing and experience. With Adair's and Angry Dog right across the street, they've picked a tough neighborhood in which to sell a mediocre burger. The search continues.

This is always a place where I take out-of-towners to show off. Variety is impressive, as is the service. Not really a joint I prefer to take my wife, but for me and my old college buddies, it more than does the trick. Been a loyal customer here for some time.

I love the burgers here. I decided to try them after they made the Top 50 list in the Texas Monthly magazine. My husband and I are determined to try all 50 burgers and so far, this has been our favorite. The only negative is the inconsistency in food quality and mediocre service. I live in Houston but will travel to Dallas on the weekend just to get a burger from this place. Sometimes when I come, the lettuce and tomatoes are soggy and the fries are cold; while others the food is perfect. You can tell that the staff doesn't like complaints so I often will just keep the food even when it is of poor quality. After driving all the way to Dallas to eat here, I would really appreciate hot and fresh food because it cost me a heck of a lot more to eat this burger than what the staff is aware of. I am sure many people are going through extra lengths to patronize this establishment due to the Texas Monthly article. If they would focus more on consistent food quality and friendlier service, they would have a 5 star establishment in my opinion.

My friends and I decided to find the best burger in Dallas. TWBC came in a close second however Angry Dog was a favorite with all.

TWBC has unique burgers but when it came down to the meat the AD was more juicy.

Both give you a lot for your money. Good deals!!

Heard about this place on Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives on the Food Channel. On a recent trip to Dallas for a visit went to this place on a Friday night. Line was out the door and took approx 45 minutes to get through and place our order. Bar would not serve anybody until reached end of line so couldn't drink a beer while we waited in line. Burger was ordered medium rare and came out medium well. Ordered a bucket of beer and it came to the table iced down but was only cool at best. Had to wait another 30 minutes for beer to get cold. Would not go back.

The burgers are served on sesame seed buns, which were dry on top and a bit soggy on the bottom. The meat patties were 1/2" thick, hand-formed, and come cooked medium-well to well, which made them pretty dry. They also had no real noticeable seasoning. The bacon on Lisa's burger was crisp, but the peppercorn ranch was a little watery and made the rest of the burger soggy. She wasn't able to finish hers, and she's a real hamburger nut.

Overall, a fairly disappointing experience. With Adair's and Angry Dog right across the street, they've picked a tough neighborhood in which to sell a mediocre burger. The search for the best burger in Dallas continues.

Pros: Onion Rings, Ice Cream, Sweet Potato Fries, Pickles, Staff

Cons: The Burgers And Pretty Much Everything Else

While driving down Commerce on a rainy Saturday afternoon my husband and I noticed this long winding line of people who didn't seem to mind waiting, to get in the Twisted Root Burger Co. and seeing this I immediately wanted to eat there so we parked and the long line quickly dwindled. I don't hold the parking against them since their job is to make premium burgers not to provide premium parking for me to enjoy while I dine there. We sat at the same table with people that had two extra chairs on the end because it was very crowded and you sit where you can. This didn't bother us one bit we enjoyed each other as if it were just us two. If you are with people you enjoy you create your own ambience. People don't line up in the rain to get average food and poor service. This was the BEST burger I've ever eaten. Turkey topped with chipotle, guacamole and cheddar. Moist, tasty and delish! My husband had the Mushroom Swiss he loved it and got a big kick out of being called Darth Vader as he picked up our order. The sweet potato fries were crispy and tasty . It was so good that I wanted it again for dinner! We loved the condiments and the staff was down right giddy they were so friendly. The place is filled with great reviews in the hallway so I'm not so sure where the people with the negative reviews were eating. The long line did it for me. I'm so glad we stopped.

I have no idea what the original location is like, but we will never go back to the new Richardson place. Limited seating, plain burgers - not cooked to order and the mushrooms were from a CAN!!! Frozen curly fries? Are you kidding me? Still wondering what all the hype was about?? We went on a Friday night. Note - if you do go, send one of your party into the dining room while you wait in line to order so they can swoop down on a table as it opens up. Or if the weather is nice, you can sit outside. We saw 2 stranded groups with food in their hands waiting for a table. Sorry, but there are better places to get a burger. Hype, Hype, Hype.

Wow...the burgers here are F'ing great... the sides are excellent also. The staff is pretty cool; expect a wait during lunch most days though because this place is pretty popular. Parking can be a pain, but it's free during the lunchtime hour still if you can find it.

Honestly, hands down THIS is the place to get the best burger in Dallas. My hubby and I were living at the Deep Ellum Lofts for a yr and this place is just a few blocks from there and we went alot. I recommend the Blue Cheese & Jalapeno Burger for those who like spice (I just take out the jalapenos cause I'm a wimp..lol) The meat is soo juicy and fresh!! Sweet potato chips are delicious, as well as the twisted fries. We always share fries since the servings are huge enough for 2 (or 3) people.
I also recommend their specialty root beer floats. Unfortunately we don't go as often since we've moved to Allen but plan on making a trip out there in about 2 wks and can't wait to be greeted by these uber cool people...Atmosphere is directed more towards people with a sense of humor and laid-back personality...I've even seen way older couples here having a good time. Highly recommend it.

There is something different about Twisted Root, and their burgers are great.

To the guy that mentioned poor service. I went in the middle of the day, and they were VERY busy with lunch clientele of all sorts. Families, businessmen, and everything in between were dining there.
The service I received was great. Smiles all around, very helpful and they seemed eager to please. Customers looked happy too. All in all, great stuff.

I don't really have much to say about this place. Because we didn't get a chance to eat! We stopped here after seeing them on citysearch. We walked in on a weekday around 130-2. If I remember correctly they closed at 230 and boy could you feel that when we walked in. The way you order was a turn off very fuddruckerish. No one greeted us no one said nothing. They looked at us like they had their mind on closing. So we walked out. Walked down the street to the angry dog and had a total opposite experience. Too bad the customer service was terrible. Now the dog sees us time and time again.

Who ever heard of a spicy, cruncy pickle? This place is great! You can get a regular burger, but with all of the gourmet toppings why would you? Fantastic burger, and fun downtown location. You even get to be a star!

Pros: Not just a cheeseburger... more like heaven on a bun.

Cons: Location, location, location... oh, and a weeeeee bit pricey for burgers. But like I said, it's not just a burger.

Sitting right in the middle of Deep Ellum this is the burger place to be. The burgers are always juicy and full of flavor. The "twisted" condiments make the burgers zestier. The daily Twisted Root Beer flavor is always an adventure. (The almond was decent the cinnamon not so good.)

The restaurant's concept is pretty neat. They make hand make everything from their own condiments, teas, rootbeers, pickles, and ice cream. The interior is pretty neat too. The staff is very friendly. The food was just ok. The burger meat was decent but the bun was not to my liking. The bread felt and tasted "dough like" like the buns were not baked long enough. Their fries and fried green beans are really really good though. Their watermellon tea was also really good.

Despite some of the negative (and, yes, that's always going to happen) reviews, I personally think, Twisted Root Burger Co. does indeed, serve the best burger (and, burger experience) in Dallas!
Plus, I love their home made root beers, flavored ice teas, and decadent home made ice creams.

After reading several of these reviews, suspicious and otherwise, I?d have to agree with those who found the bang-to-hype ratio a bit outta whack at Twisted Root Burgers. Top 100 restaurant? Best of? Whoa, you might wanna tap the brakes a bit on that. I mean, c?mon, the burgers were decent enough in a Chili?s sort of way. They were about average in poundage for the price, however, they tasted unseasoned and not particularly beefy. (Buffalo and turkey were also available, but why?) The buns were frankly too soft for my liking. By meal?s end, the whole shebang had disintegrated messily into my hands. On the plus side, the curly fries made it to our table crisp and tasted fine, although I?d have to agree with the earlier review that the ?homemade? ketchup was a zero. (Restaurateurs: please stop using the adjective ?homemade?! It makes no sense in a commercial context.) We didn?t sample any milk shakes or root beers or so-called ?sissy food.? Probably my biggest beef (pardon the pun) with this place is the over-the-top vibe that suffocates the atmosphere, such as it is. Customers are assigned ostensibly cute names (Elvis, Yoda, Marilyn Monroe, etc) instead of numbers. When your order is ready, you might hear: ?Happy birthday, Mister Pres-i-dent...!? If you dig D*ck?s Last Resort, then you may love it. [*Citysearch blocked its full name!] Personally our table found the hokey drone grating and disruptive to conversation. Add to that, the lamentable but seemingly inexorable demise of Deep Ellum (will this be the last restaurant standing?) and I?m afraid once will be enough for us.

I went to the Twisted Root today. This was my second time. The first time was with coworkers during a conference. This time I brought my family. Need I say more? Burgers are excellent, fries are amazing and the onion rings are TO DIE FOR - very "stick to your ribs" kind of food. We didn't try the ice cream this time but the root beer and home made condiments were wonderful! Next time we are going for the float......we will definately come back and spread the word!

Oh by the way, it is somewhat of an adult atmosphere but we went on a Saturday afternoon - too late to be considered lunch and too early to be considered dinner - so it wasn't packed. My kids loved the names they give you to call out when your food is ready. Lots of fun!

Beware reviews of Twisted Root Burger Co. posted here. After visiting it -- and having a less-than five-star experience -- I took a look back at the dozens of raves that prompted me to check it out in the first place. On closer inspection, many of these posts struck me as having been written by the same person and, in fact, read more like press releases. Many were even submitted on the same day: 23 posts on 11/16/06 alone! Dig a bit deeper and you?ll find the authors of these supposed reviews have posted nothing other than their glowing evaluations of Twisted Root. Hmm... Bogus reviews?

Which isn?t to imply the food here is bad. The burgers ($5-$8, without sides) are firmly in the Fuddruckers tradition, which is to say, a Whataburger made with more (? pound), higher quality beef. Ours were ordered medium-rare and were cooked properly; however, a bit of bone in one bite was an unwelcome addition. The beef tasted fine, if a bit nondescript, and, a la most Metroplex burgers, the patties had been cooked on a griddle. (Why wouldn?t a ?burger company? cook their namesake product over flame?) Not a bad burger but certainly nothing special. The much-ballyhooed homemade ketchup, actually ancho chile ketchup, was not worth the trouble: not spicy, no fresh tomato flavor, a bit like supermarket ketchup spiked with chili powder. The real flavor disaster, however, lies in the homemade ?Root Beer of The Day.? On our day it was ?Butterscotch Root Beer,? which somehow managed to taste worse than imagined: sickly sweet and reeking of bubble gum (or maybe cotton candy?), it was certainly not root beer, and was frankly undrinkable. (For fans of the real deal, head east to Dairy-Ette on Ferguson Rd.)

Overall, Twisted Root Burger Co. is, alas, another ho-hum stab at making a better burger in Dallas. I couldn?t help thinking that the minds behind three culinary degrees (as so touted on their website) would come up something different from what Angry Dog?s been dishing out for years.

I'm an expert on Burgers - honestly an expert - and thisTHANKFULLY is no cookie cutter burger spot. The two main parts of a burger: the meat and the bread are Unbeatably Fresh - you can tell! On top of that--everything else has it's own AMAZING twist. I come here for lunch or after a crazy night and the food combined with the atmosphere make this place the best in Dallas. The homemade sauces and root beer are a MUST! Great Service - I'll be back again and again!

My friend I performed a very "scientific" review of the Twisted Root and Angry Dog. We ate the exact same burgers at both locations and both agreed that the Angry Dog burger was superior. The freshly grated cheddar cheese made the difference.

This place definitely serves the best burgers in Dallas. All of the ingredients are very fresh and are high quality. The servings are large, the service is quick, the place is always clean, and the atmosphere in pleasant. Aside from the burgers, they have excellent shakes (the peaches and cream is my favorite). They used to serve hand battered onion rings, but stopped serving them- I wish they'd bring those back. Even with all of the road construction going on in the Deep Ellum area, Twisted Root is worth going to.

P.S. They only serve dinner a few nights per week, so make sure they're open.

Casual counter style ordering, condiments on each table, exposed brick walls. Service is fast and the food is delicious, although the sweet potato chips were a bit soggy last time we were there. Great place for a quick Saturday lunch!

If you like ?meat? on your burgers, this is the place to try. Not only are the ingredients fresh, but wildly different. You won?t be disappointed. If you like regular, Texas style, burgers you can get that, too, but you?d be cheating yourself if you didn?t try one of the gourmet burgers with everything from Black Angus to veggie patties. And save room for the most incredible ice cream you will ever put in your mouth! You won?t find pre-packed flavors because all their ice creams are custom made with flavor combinations that make your mouth water by just reading the menu!

I go to the Root at least every couple of weeks and still think it's the best in town. I stand by my 07 review (see below, unless this new review wipes it out - which would be a shame, as it is Emerson-worthy prose).

On a couple of trips the seasoning was off (1: Ostrich patty too salty, 2: Buffalo not seasoned enough), but with the frequency I eat there, that's a pretty good average.

Still great (and the only place I'll drink a Lone Star, for some reason)!

OK. I know a thing or two about burgers - having eaten a Texas-sized herd's worth of USDA Prime - and the only burger to cause me physical cravings is The Twisted Root's Blue Cheese Jalapeno burger with grilled onions. It has always proven worth the 20+ minute drive from my home (past at least 50 other "burger joints") to The Root for the BCJ - but don't forget the grilled onions! My wife tried a salad once that impressed me, too (with its size and assortment of unusual ingredients), but I am all about the burgers! If I could give The Root six stars, I would - the staff, the atmosphere, the service and especially the burgers are that good!

When two chefs with high-end backgrounds join forces to open a little burger joint, one might expect miracles. It's not exactly miraculous, but it's nice to know that you can get a buffalo burger if you want one. Regular burgers are made…
